Indigenous Mount Royal

Oki, Amba’wastitch, Danit’ada

Mount Royal University is situated in an ancient and storied place within the hereditary lands of the Niitsitapi (Blackfoot), Îyârhe Nakoda, Tsuut’ina and Métis Nations. It is a land steeped in ceremony and history that, until recently, was used and occupied exclusively by peoples indigenous to this place.

Mount Royal University is committed to doing its part to address the legacy of broken promises and rebuild the relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Peoples in Calgary and across the country. We began the process with a framework for planning in 2013, developed strategies as staff and students, and consulted broadly. The Indigenous Strategic Plan 2016–21 was approved by the President's Executive Council in August 2016.

Our goal is to indigenize Mount Royal University, to respect and embrace Indigenous knowledge and ways of knowing, to integrate Indigenous teachings and practices, to support Indigenous learners, and to honour Indigenous experiences and identities.

Student Resources

The work of indigenization and decolonization at Mount Royal University bears importance for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous students across campus. We are taking steps to foster a respectful and inclusive learning environment, and to establish and sustain support services and resources for current and prospective Indigenous students.
